Creamy Spinach Doodles

We have a refrigerator full of fresh spinach. Our CSA is harvesting spring greens at a ridiculously fast pace, and they are passing the greens along to us. I hate masses of green mush otherwise known as cooked spinach, and I've already grown tired of cold salads, so we had to find a new way to eat the dark green leaves in our fridge. Fortunately, they passed this recipe along, too. We made it tonight, adjusted it, and loved it.

  1. That sounds so simple and so yummy. I put in some spinach too late into the garden–I hope it doesn’t get all wilty in the heat. If I get a lot, I’ll try this! If not, I’ll toss it in salads. It’s nice to have options, isn’t it? I’m no expert, but I’ll bet there are some other interesting pasta combos you could try, don’t you think?

    • Ann – Yes! I do think we’ll find lots of combination now that we know we like slightly cooked spinach. If your spinach doesn’t thrive now, you can always try again in August. You should be able to grow some nice plants in the cool of the fall. 🙂

  3. YUM!! That does sound really good!!

    Have you tried making “green smoothies” – those take spinach. I know it may sound weird, but you can’t taste it and gives a health boost to smoothies.

  5. I have a fantastic recipe for Spinach on my food and fitness blog, sadly the links in the side bar need updating, but it you’re interested I’ll sort out the link for you. It’s spicy mince (ground meat) with rice and spinach.

  10. This sounds great! I look forward to trying it.

    Do you make this with red pasta sauce, or a white alfredo sauce? The recipe doesn’t specify. Thanks!
